Hangry computer


In Taiwan there's a belief among a lot of people that electronics will only work if you place Kuai Kuai snacks near them. Therefore, if you see a small bag of snacks on a computer in Taiwan DO NOT TOUCH!

I have a similar theory: Public transportation runs on human life energy.
That's why you feel like crap after a long time you spend in a bus :stare:

Here we usually joke that computers and other electronics work because they contain smoke. If you let the smoke out, they stop working.

The ghost in the machine gets angry if his snacks are removed.

Hm... Looks like I finally found the perfect place for this trivia:

There's a line in the Apollo program code for the LM, which is labled "flag orgy", because it sets about 200+ "flags" (i.e. to start underprograms, give informations to the computer etc.). Without this "flag orgy", we would never went on the moon.

Oh. And there's also a commentary for the ignition: "Burn baby". I love 1960s rocket scientists :)

@People joking about making offerings and prayers to their machines, read up on St. Isidore.
